11 May

It’s time for Shakespeare! Let’s start with a bit of introduction to the man and his time. First a short video. And another from my favorite, Mr.Sato.

Open the Globe 360 app on the iPad. Tour around for a bit. You can also take this Interactive tour (This does NOT 😦 work on iPads). Here is a Video tour with better visuals. If you don’t have the app on your iPad, use the links above or do a video search for “Globe theater interactive tour“.

Now write about it. Pretend that you are a Globe Theater patron in 1600 and you have come to the theater to see a play by Shakespeare. Describe the theater using sensory details. Describe the action around you and what you think about it. Be creative and stay in character.

Midsummer Night’s Dream- Set up character chart. There are 3 categories of characters: the Nobles, the Rustics, and the Fairies. Create a graphic organizer with the characters in the play. Divide them into the three categories. You may use paper or the iPad for this.

How to read this Shakespeare stuff.

Setting the scene and doing a bit of reading. Begin Act 1– Character introductions of the Nobles.
